Album Notes
This album contains some of my most popular live songs. Anecdote: One night traveling by train from Auschwitz across the Polish - Ukrainian border I arrived in Lvov, jumped in a taxi. Next morning I woke up in a Soviet hotel and realized I had left my wallet in the backseat of the cab, with $2000 in it. I had enough money for a glass of vodka and a bit of water melon. I made one phone call to Kiev and my friend Sergey wired me a few hundred bucks without batting an eyelid, and I realized the value of true friendship. Trouble, written on the tramway in Lvov, because it the only place that I could go without paying. A few weeks later I woke up in a flat in Kiev lent to me by Sergey with a pain in my stomach. I walked into the kitchen, picked up the guitar, then it all came out. Block 5 conceived in Auschwitz. I knew I had written something special that morning. Serengeti, a song very popular "live" with the guys, was written on the beaches of Zanzibar after a trip to the African bush. Every morning the children would bang the door of my hut and shout gytar, gytar. One particular kid would hang it around his neck and thrash it. When I was writing the chorus under the palm trees, the kids would all sing it with me. Unforgettable experience.
